I've been happy with Arai Quantums for a while, even field tested one, ouch!
I tried on a C3 last week at the dealer and was impressed with the fit.
My question, is the new C3 comparably quiet as a well fitting Arai?
The C3 is the most quiet helmet I've ever owned. Something that is often missed is that the shield has a positive latch to hold it tightly closed. You have to pull it down hard until it snaps over the detent.
